Tip Tuesday: That's Not Trash!

Some may think these things are destined for the garbage can, but think twice! Not only are you reusing something, but you're using your creative juices to figure out new uses for old things. 

1. Products with stay fresh bags. I have begun saving the bags from products like the one pictured below. They have a zipper seal on them and they are tougher plastic than a regular Ziplock bag. They can come in handy and prevent you from having to buy baggies. You can rinse and reuse them. 

2. Mesh fruit bags. Save these bags that you get fruit in. Just bunch it up into a ball and it works great as a dish scrubber. 

3. Save your milk jugs just in time to do this for Halloween. Draw faces on the outside with Sharpie, cut a small hole in the back of the jug and stuff several lights in each jug lining them up.
